VeloWeb Readers’ Rando Rigs…

I posted a slew of poorly lit and haphazardly composed photos of bikes from the Eau de Hell Week 600K last week. Chris Cullum kindly pointed me to a post on Raymond Parker’s VeloWeb site that details a few of these bikes with professional photography. Chris also provided some updates on the info in Raymond’s post discussing changes since last year [see comments section of my EdeH bike post]. I know, for example, Lee Ringham no longer rides the LHT shown as he has switched to a Velo Orange 650B Polyvalent bike.





Mark Thomas’ 1200K Plan..

Mark Thomas of the Seattle International Randonneur Club posted a simple 1200K plan on his blog. I like the fact that it’s so straightforward and concise that a tired mind can use it reliably. I also like the fact that the average speeds required and well within my grasp! I’m impressed by the ultra fast randonneurs, but I am not one of them!

I stole this photo from an interview with Mark that was posted on The Bicycle Story – worth a read!
